1932 Saloon Restoration
#24
Dave - My own car is an early (December '32) RP and that had its original wooden brackets.  The RNs that I've had intimate hands-on experience of were late ones and also used timber.  Your brackets certainly appear to be original and are similar in character to the metal connectors used in RKs - although perversely not in the roof (or were they?), at least in my experience. 

If you get the chance, some measurements would be very useful.

I think that from Wian's first post, he wasn't certain as to whether his '32 car is an RN or an RP.

At the risk of infringing Ruairidh's copyright, I've attached the photo that he sent me a couple of weeks ago of the bracket in his car.  

Comparing this with Dave's pictures, I'm pretty certain that it's a more modern replacement, perhaps fabricated from square tube, of the flimsier, pressed original.  This led me to jump to the wrong conclusion!

Joking aside, Ruairidh, I realise what a minefield it is, trying to compile "definitive" information getting on for a century after the event.  Mr Purves has my heartfelt sympathy!
